War court judge orders replacement for overseer of Guantanamo cases

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 03/03/2015 - 02:49
By Lacey Ann Johnson FORT MEADE, Md. (Reuters) - A military commander overseeing tribunals for al Qaeda suspects at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, exercised "unlawful influence" to speed up trial proceedings and must relinquish his authority over the cases, a military judge ruled on Monday. The allegations about the commander arose last week during a pretrial hearing for Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, a Saudi charged with orchestrating the 2000 suicide bombing of the USS Cole in Yemen that killed 17 sailors. The top Pentagon official overseeing the war court, retired Marine Corps Major General Vaughn Ary, exercised unlawful influence in deciding military judges must relocate to the naval base in Cuba, Judge Air Force Colonel Vance Spath said in his ruling on Monday. Deputy Defense Secretary Robert Work signed the relocation order in January, but it was rescinded by the U.S. Defense Department on Friday in light of the unlawful influence allegations.

Philadelphia Fed names Patrick Harker as Plosser's successor

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 03/03/2015 - 02:46
The Philadelphia Federal Reserve on Monday named Patrick Harker, one of its directors and the head of the University of Delaware, as its president and the newest U.S. monetary policymaker. Harker, 56, begins the job July 1 and succeeds Charles Plosser, an outspoken and hawkish Fed official who retired on Sunday after more than eight years at the helm. Relatively unknown on the national economic scene, Harker sat on the Philadelphia Fed board's committee that conducted the search for a new president. A spokeswoman for the regional Fed bank said he recused himself from the process once he became a candidate, but did not give further details.

U.S. justices raise doubts about Arizona redistricting commission

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 03/03/2015 - 02:34
By Lawrence Hurley WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday appeared skeptical of a voter-approved plan that stripped Arizona state lawmakers of their role in drawing congressional districts in an bid to remove partisan politics from the process. The nine-justice court's conservative majority, including regular swing vote Justice Anthony Kennedy, asked questions during a one-hour oral argument that indicated there could be a majority willing to find that the ballot initiative violated the U.S. Constitution's requirement that state legislatures set congressional district boundaries. The state's Republican-controlled legislature objected to a 2000 ballot initiative endorsed by Arizona voters that set up an independent commission to determine the U.S. House of Representatives districts.
